Beyonce’s mom files for divorce


There’s one more single lady in the Knowles family.  Tina Knowles, singer Beyonce’s mother, recently filed for divorce from the performer’s father and manager Matthew Knowles.  The couple was wed in 1980 and also has a 23-year-old daughter Solange who is also a performer.

“The decision to end our marriage is an amicable one,” the couple said in a statement provided to The Associated Press. “We remain friends, parents, and business partners. If anyone is expecting an ugly messy fight, they will be sadly disappointed. We ask for your respect of our privacy as we handle this matter.”
